When removing the speakers from the packaging, please make sure that you keep the paint masking

For Suspended Ceiling Installations
Remove the ceiling tile from the selected speaker location that is to be cut from the ceiling, and an
adjacent ceiling tile for access.
Place the tile to be cut, finished side down, on a
flat surface. Place the tile bridge, in the desired
location, on back of the tile. Make sure the edges of the tile bridge will rest on the grid portion of the
ceiling. Mark the speaker hole with pencil, using the hole of the tile bridge as the template.
Place the marked tile onto an empty open box or trashcan, to catch any debris. Please make sure to
have appropriate clearance for the saw blade and cut the hole with a “plunge’ hand or power saw.
Replace cut ceiling tile in ceiling. Lay the tile bridge in the ceiling, lining up the hole in the tile bridge
with the hole that was cut in the ceiling tile. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to make sure the tile
bridge is oriented so it is supported by the lip of the grid.
Fully insert the speaker from below through the hole in the tile and its tile bridge support, making sure
to hold the speaker carefully to avoid damaging the speaker cone. Start tightening the screws on the
face of the speaker can. Continue, checking to make sure the dog ears (flippers) are fully extended,
and that the tile bridge is sitting flush against the tile. Make sure to keep a secure hold on the
speaker until the dog ears are fully tightened, clamping securely onto the tile bridge and ceiling tile.
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN! Secure the speaker to structure above the ceiling with provided metal
Main Active Speaker Wire Connection:
Connect the audio wires connecting active speakers to three passive speakers through conduit. Pre
terminate the wire and connect the Phoenix plug to the wire. Punch the knockout on the side of the
handy box. After the connection is made, make sure to close the handy box with the cover provided.
The audio wires should be a two conductor wire with recommended 18 AWG wire.
Connect the Ethernet signal wires through conduit, terminate with RJ45 connector, punch the one of
the knock out where RJ45 jack is located, than plug it into the speaker. After the connection is made,
make sure to close the handy box with the cover provided.
The connection should be
made Cat5 or above cable for
the Ethernet connection.
Grille Installation:
Align the tabs on the grille with three opening slots on the rim of the enclosure.
The end of the tabs on the grill, when correctly installed, will be slightly above the tile bridge and
between the tile bridge and speaker. The grill will seat flush or level against the ceiling. Any gaps
between the grill and ceiling may indicate that the tab in that area has not ‘snapped’ in place. Failure
to make sure the grill is ‘snapped’ in place could lead to the grill falling out.
Painting the Grille:
Use the paint masking card board provided if you need to paint the grille after the installation. Insert
the paint mask between the grille and speaker enclosure then snap the grille.
After the spray paint is done, make sure to take the paint masking card board out by unsnapping the
grille. If needed, use flat screw driver to pop the grille off from the side of the grille. Take the paint
masking board out, and reinstall the grille.
The speakers should be not open, altered, tampered without the consulting with AMK, otherwise you
will lose the warranty on the speaker. If the speaker is a need for additional support for seismic
mounting, please consultant with AMK.
